Why buy a knit blanket?
Knit blankets are a great way to bring texture and warmth into your home. These blankets are a great way to make your space comfortable and relaxing, especially for leisure activities such as reading and watching TV.
Knit blankets come in various patterns, colors, and thicknesses and may even feature pom poms or tassels. There are even mermaid tail-shaped blankets! The options are pretty extensive, so don’t feel limited. If you want a knit blanket that’s perfect for a particular room or person, you shouldn’t have to look long before you find the right one.
What should you look for in a knit blanket?
- Fabric: Knit blankets come in a few different makes, with choices ranging from acrylic to cotton or even a mixture of both. Acrylic ones are usually more durable, but materials like chenille will be ultra-soft.
- Care: Look at the washing instructions before deciding which blanket will work best with your lifestyle. For example, if you’re looking for a knit blanket for your baby or toddler, you might want one that can be machine washed.
How should you wash a knit blanket?
Many knit blankets won’t hold up well when washed and dried in machines, at least when done on normal or high-heat cycles. You should always look at the washing directions the manufacturer recommends for the blanket you buy to keep it in its best shape. Often, this will mean hand washing in cold water and hanging it to dry, especially with super chunky, looser-knit blankets. Some tighter-knit blankets can be washed in delicate cycles and dried on low heat. However, remember that most knit blankets don’t need to be washed all that often, which will help them last longer as well.
